As all is coming back - atomic waste, Das Kapital and whatever else, so here come Die 3 Tornados! "Die 3 Tornados" who accompanied the 70ies political scene and movements like women's lib, social and ecological movements, the foundation of "die tageszeitung" with their anarchic humour, similar to G.Seyfried with his cartoons. So there was a always a bit 'Anarchy in Germoney' on stage in that times! Polit (not polite) Rock (Cabaret!) at it's best!
Die 3 Tornados 1978-Jun-04 1. Alternatives Umweltfestival auf dem Oktoberfestgelände, Jafféstraße, Nähe Funkturm, im großen Ausstellungszelt, Berlin, Germany (4.6.-16.7.1978)

Other than usual this recording of mine(?) is incomplete, has a cut after nearly every song and, strange enough, it is packed on the end of a tape of a months later taped concert. I can only remember that I was on this Umweltfestival, also that I was standing behind in a filled tent (think I was late), and I think I was the one who recorded the bit what I have got. So it is a 1st gen and I don't know what happened to the master, perhaps I have deleted the recording to have a spare tape again.
I just picked my notice book from 1978 and it says that I was 2 times in Berlin, at the beginning and at the end of the festival. I know for certain, that the recording is of June. At the start of the festival I stayed longer there, but now I believe the 3 Tornados played in the late afternoon/evening of the first day after the bycicle-demo, on Sunday 4th! This came out in quality much better than I thought in my remembering. There is a a continuously sound that comes from a blower (for fresh air in the heat of the tent). I removed some micro-klicks, smoothed the cuts two times a bit, and increased the volume.
I couldn't find out all titles. So if anyone knows a missing title, please tell us. You can watch a part of this show there(!): www.die-3-tornados.de/kkw_nee.mpg
